The Lonesome Sea

The Button Collective have spent the past weekend on a macadamia farm in Whian Whian recording an EP. This EP will be a bridge between the first and second Button Collective albums (with the second being recorded at the end of this year).

There’s a nautical theme to the four tracks on the EP, two of which are traditional songs (Adieu Sweet Lovely Nancy and Paddy’s Lamentation), and two are originals. There’s still a little bit of recording that needs to be done, but we’re hoping to release these tracks very soon.

This recording session was also the first time I got to use my new double bass! It sounded great, thanks in no small part to the efforts of Steve Law, our wonderful engineer.
